Liverpool giving medical to Alisson ahead of 'significant' transfer - Monchi

After being unveiled as the most expensive goalkeeper in the history of football, Alisson Becker spoke of his joy at signing for Liverpool.

Gianluigi Buffon has always been the most expensive goalkeeper in history after joining Juventus from Parma for 53 million euros in 2001.

Alisson played 49 games for AS Roma last season and helped lead the Serie A club to the Champions League semi-final round, where it lost to Liverpool 7-6 on aggregate.

"In terms of my life and my career, it's a huge step for me being part of this club and this family", said Allison.

He started all five games for Brazil at the World Cup in Russian Federation where they bowed out in a quarter-final defeat by Belgium.

The Reds ended up losing the Champions League final to Real Madrid back in May.

While Klopp is diplomatic in his quotes regarding Karius and Mignolet's abilities, there is no doubt that Alisson will usurp his two rivals for the Liverpool goalkeeper's jersey next season.

This signing will have massive repercussions on the transfer market as this will begin to inflate the prices of other players in the transfer market.

"We are heading in different directions, but I want to thank everyone: the club, the team, and all the fans of Roma that motivated me to leave it all out on the pitch".

I'm really happy with what I've seen here, it's so organised. "Liverpool FC needs just the highest quality goalkeepers and that's what we have at the moment, we'll see now what we do in the next few weeks". 'We met again in the game when we were up against each other [in the Champions League last season].

Roma sporting director Monchi has said the club allowed goalkeeper Alisson to speak to Liverpool after receiving "a significant offer", with the player undergoing a medical on Merseyside.

"The full package is just too good".

"Putting the result aside, which was an unfortunate moment in my career - but it wasn't my first defeat and won't be my last, we have to deal with these things as professionals - it was an wonderful game".
